Atletico Madrid eased past Getafe in a 2-1 victory on Tuesday at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez. Getafe were hoping to get something from this game after losing 3-0 to Rayo Vallecano in their previous fixture. Atleti are struggling for form following a draw in their last match. As it stands, Getafe are currently 19th with 0 points from 6 matches, while Atleti sit in 1st, with 14 points from 6.

Deep Blues started the game well, with Stefan Mitrovic finding the net just before half-time

Atleti continued to apply pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to a goal from Luis Suarez in the 78th minute. They then scored again, increasing their advantage thanks to a second effort from Luis Suarez just before the final whistle with a final score of 2-1.

For Getafe, Enes Unal, Jonathan Silva and Darío Poveda, came on for Jose Macias, Jaime Mata and Florentino Luis. Atleti brought on Mario Hermoso, Rodrigo De Paul, Matheus Cunha and Sime Vrsaljko, to replace Kieran Trippier, Renan Lodi, Antoine Griezmann and Hector Herrera.

The referee booked Jaime Mata, Carles Alena, Nemanja Maksimovic and Jorge Cuenca from Getafe and Carles Alena went off with a red card, while Atleti’s Luis Suarez, Hector Herrera, Jose Gimenez, Yannick Carrasco and Matheus Cunha also received a yellow.
